Blog Tour: Fury by Charlotte McConaghy


Fury: Book 1 of The Cure by Charlotte McConaghy
348 pages, Published March 25th, 2014 by Momentum Books, Pan Macmillan

In the tradition of Divergent comes a novel about a world where negative emotions are stolen ... and only those with fury can stand up and fight.

Eighteen-year-old Josephine Luquet wakes naked and covered in blood that is not hers on the same day every year—when the blood moon is full. Josi has not responded to the "Cure"—an immunization against anger mandated by the government—and believes herself to be a threat to others.

Then she meets Luke. Luke has had the Cure but seems different to the other "drones"—and he's dead set on helping Josi discover the truth about herself before the next blood moon.

But time is running out. Is Luke willing to risk his life to be near her? Does he truly understand what violence she is capable of?

Raw and full of passion, Fury is a story of love in a dystopian world, and how much we are willing to forgive in the struggle to remember our humanity.

My Review
I liked the story. As if you didn't know that, I am pretty good at picking book I think I may like. This is maybe the 4th book I have read where the powers that be are trying to rid the people of emotion. Unfortunatley, these scenerios are not as far fetch as one would hope. Maybe it's just me but I could see a future where the government tries to have the "perfect society. Anyway...

The characters are good. They draw you in. The story-line keeps your intention.  It was a medium paced book for me. There were parts where it lagged for me. All in all a good read.

Should you read it? Yes. Who should read it? Fans of dystopian.
